Great movie with multiple layers. It took me a little time to get into it and understand the movie. But after a short time I was hooked. It is a big, sprawling undertaking and must have been a complicated production. I will read the book and watch the movie again.
Thanks to some extra background information from a friend this movie was much easyer to follow and to understand then the first time i saw it . And Tom Hanks proofs 6 times again what a briljant actor he is ! SOMDVD
A movie you have to watch more than once because there are so many details. One of the great odd SiFi pics like Brasil. 6 stories in one all connected in some way- The Actors perform multiple roles and you can´t even tell sometimes until the credits. This should become a cult film not mainstream but well worth a couple of veiwings. Excellent performances but hard to follow in just one sitting. I did not eve realize that Tom Hanks was Dermot. And Bea Doo-na is excellent all around and a great surprise as a mexican in one role, ¨Dom´t call me wetback¨haha. The Gay love affair is beautiful and believable not a political statement.
An interesting and ambitious movie that entertains largely on its concept alone as well as its interchanging stories that cut back and forth making up for the long run time. Although what connects the stories isn't always clear or as clever as the Watchowkis would like, the inspiring dialogue, strong themes and imagery all impress. Alongside impressive performances mainly from how the actors are sorted into different looks and costumes, Cloud Atlas is in some ways what film is all about making the want for more more gut punching emotion, music and scripting all the more needed to make it something truly special.
Directly after watching the first time I had to rewatch it, just for the pleasure of understanding an intricate plot. My recommendation is that you do not try to understand it the first time, but just lean back and appreciate a masterpiece in a truly Wachovskian spirit!
One of the best movies I've ever seen, however it is a specific genre that pushes the medium to an artistic level a lot of people don't care for. You'll either love it or hate it. Masterpiece in my opinion.
